The Building Trade of Alberta and its affiliated unions partner with construction and maintenance industry stakeholders. We promote innovative solutions that grow Alberta’s economy. We provide the best-trained, most highly skilled workforce available. We mobilize our knowledge and understanding of the construction industry and maintenance industry to offer workable solutions that benefit all partners.
Alberta’s building trade unions partner with contractors and owners for mutual profit. Contractors and owners are more profitable because of “The Skilled
Trades Advantage”—better training, safer workplaces, the efficiencies and marketplace reach of hiring halls, and, most importantly,
a more productive workforce.
The BTA partners with government and agencies to secure the best possible outcomes for the members of our skilled trades unions. We advocate for such causes as improved labour-related legislation and policies, safe workplaces, apprenticeship training, and union construction of infrastructure projects, while promoting the sustainable growth of Alberta’s economy.
